It is native to humid evergreen forests of tropical South America. Range extends from extreme south-eastern Mexico to Amazonian Peru,Colombia, Bolivia, Venezuela and Brazil in lowlands up to 500 m (1,640 ft) (at least formerly) up to 1,000 m (3,281 ft). It has suffered from local extinction through habitat destruction and capture for the parrot trade, but locally it remains fairly common. Formerly it ranged north to southern Tamaulipas.

Hello Muhammad Shaukat,
A wonderful close-up shot of this beautiful Macaw. The contrasting colors of these large birds is simply amazing to view. Sharply focused and displaying good facial detail. Nice eye contact and perfectly exposed. Well done!!
I had a chance to see some of these gorgeous birds while visiting Costa Rica a few years ago. I took a few shots but they were a little to far away and and wouldn't give me a clear view.
Though the photograph is good ,the bird is a captive one.Tips on 'owning' birds is the least I expected from a portal loke Treknature.
